Monthly update and prayer request from the Knickerbockers. Church Planters to Wilmington, DE
September & October Prayer Letter
The Knickerbocker Family to Wilmington, DE
We apologize for the delay in sending this update. We want to thank everyone for the faithful prayers and support!

Traveling Update 

Many churches have partnered with us over the last two months. We are just over 50% of our needed support. We thank the Lord for the safety He has given us traveling thousands of miles recently. We thank the Lord for the opportunity to meet some friends and make new ones. It is encouraging to see many pastors and church members burdened for church planting in the Northeast. Please continue to pray for us as we schedule more meetings next year.

Praise the Lord for providing a Meeting Place

Contract for 1 year beginning April 2nd
After many months of looking for a meeting place the Lord led us to visit an old Masonic Temple that is currently not being used. Owned by a Senior Living center, we approached the director with the possibility of using their facility for First State Baptist Church. They were very excited about being able to rent the facility. The staff was very welcoming, and we were introduced to many of the residents in the 55+ community. It was blessing to meet a former member of Capitol Baptist Church at the center. She was excited to be able to attend church again! Brother Jack Wagner, a faithful Christian, was a big help to us to find this meeting place. We will be signing a 1 year contract with the Weston Senior Living Center. The facility includes an 1,800 square foot auditorium, bathrooms, a full kitchen, and 4 classrooms for Sunday school. We will be able to have it for $800 a month for the first 6 months, and then $1,000 a month for the next 6 months. Thank you for all those that have prayed, the Lord answered your prayer!

Beginning Sunday afternoon services 
Lord willing we will be starting Sunday afternoon services in December. Since we have had much fruit during our door to door visitation, we believe it would be a good time start holding services in Wilmington. We are praying for 5 families to be part of First State Baptist Church as charter members when we officially begin on April 2, 2017. 

Soul Winning
The response has been tremendous during our soul winning effort in Wilmington! While I was away for 2 months traveling to raise support, the folks from Capitol Baptist Church were knocking on doors faithfully. We praise the Lord that we have seen over 10 people come to know Christ this year thus far. The more time we spend in Wilmington, the more we realize that most people have never heard a clear gospel presentation. Please continue to pray that we would see a harvest of souls! 

Chairs Needed

We will be needing to purchase some chairs for the meeting place. They only have 25 chairs available at the Senior Living center for the chapel. We will we raising money to purchase chairs for the auditorium. Please pray that the Lord would provide the needed funds. If you would like send a one time donation for the chairs please send it to:
